Over the past week, we've been talking about the wide range of commentators who have partnered with VoterWatch for the 2008 Presidential Debates Project. Already, we've posted commentary in the VoterWatch media player from Dick Morris, Brett Winterble of CovertRadio and the Bob Barr for President team. Now, we are ready to release official commentary from the Ralph Nader/Matt Gonzalez campaign.
Aside from providing us with commentary, the Nader team offered up some editorial thoughts about Friday's debate. When it comes to analyzing McCain and Obama, Nader encouraged individuals to focus more on "what won" rather than "who won." This is an intriguing take when it comes to the partisan divide that often centers upon the politicians themselves, rather than the issues that are and are not discussed during presidential debates. Here are Nader's words:
Always ask after you watch a debate, not who won, but what lost and what won.
Boondoggle star wars won.
Corporate crime won.
Bailouts for Wall Street won.
Nuclear power won.
Aggressive NATO won.
Peace advocates lost.
Solar energy really lost.
These two candidates are really afraid of challenging corporate power.
It's our job to make them more afraid of the people than big business.
Now, let's explore interactive commentary from Toby Nelson of the Nader/Gonzalez team:
